    Launched at the Basel Fair in 2008, the present reference 5207 was developed over a 5 year period by Patek Philippe’s finest watchmakers and engineers. It is the third most complicated wristwatch manufactured by the renowned brand. Fitted with caliber R TO 27 PS that comprises 212 interacting individual components, reference 5207 features minute repeating, tourbillon, instantaneous perpetual calendar, leap year indicator, day and night display and moon phases. The present watch delivers precise striking of the gong with a melodious chime and terrific quality. The watch is furthermore coupled with a very distinctive dial that displays three apertures for the day, date and month. As opposed to the regular indicators, all these apertures advance instantaneously and synchronously at midnight.

    The platinum version of reference 5207 is now discontinued, making this highly complex wristwatch very exclusive and extremely desirable. Double sealed, the watch is complete with all original accessories such as the Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated October 18, 2012, Rate Accuracy Certificate stamped July 20, 2012, additional case back, setting pin, product literature, instruction manual, portfolio photograph of the present watch, leather portfolio, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499.

Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
